      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. The track and car are standard Harken mini. You'll also need to mini blocks with Becket's and two regular turning blocks. Not sure what is used on the sliding post. All in all about 6" travel up/down and 10" in/out
  2. I was going to suvvest the Fireball as fitting the bill but I'm biased... Many clubs used Fireballs as their junior/club boats until the professionally built wooden boats arrived and made all of the previous fiberglass boats junk. The class has come full circle and Kevlar/glass boats are the standard now. Ready to sail out of the box for about 17k USD Www.weathermarksailboats.com
  3. You need a separate luff wire to feed through the sleeve
